O’Brien said the scammers identified themselves as the FDIC, which insures banks…..

A grandchild of the Knox County woman went to law enforcement. O’Brien encourages senior citizens to be aware that they are a target of scammers and for family members to be aware of what’s going on in the lives of their older parents and grandparents. He said if you get calls saying your identity has been compromised and there’s money involved to be alert that it’s a scam.
